Improve data by taking a number of key sources, such as Discovery, CMDB, SCCM, AD, AV, ITAM and reconcile them together. The steps to take are:

  • Define the reconciliation purpose; maybe billing or configuration optimisation;
  • Prepare the sources; cleaning the data up, removing duplicates etc.;
  • Carry out the analysis; map the same assets to each other and identify differences;
  • Create a ‘golden record’; a single, well defined, version of specific metadata about an asset;
  • Improve the processes to correct the source data and keep it accurate.
